This might be the biggest war that we have ever faced. The vikings are overpowering us and we are hiding in fear. The king has found us and we are being shipped off to fight the vikings. We are getting our weapons and being mounted on horseback. Turner and I had many close encounters with the vikings. We survived the war. But our town still has to recover from the devastating effects of the vikings.
